Garden birds identification

Identify the birds that visit your garden with this handy spotter sheet.

All sorts of birds make their homes in your garden. Now it’s time to see how many you can spot. Are you up to the challenge?

  • Use nuts and seeds to tempt different birds to visit
  • Look on your ID sheet and tick off each bird you see in your garden
  • Remember to leave water out for birds to drink and wash in too

Try experimenting with different foods. Try nuts, seeds and dried mealworms and see which birds prefer which foods. Are there any that come back time and time again?
